Where the good comes from.
The Lausitzer Group consists of three companies with their locations in Sohland, Steinberg, and Ellefeld. As a medium-sized family-owned company with approximately 170 employees, we have become the largest fruit-processing company in Saxony as well as one of the leading companies in the field of food additives and consumer goods in the fruit and vegetable segment. Each location has its own specialty, whether it's canned goods from Sohland, children's juices from Ellefeld, or mushrooms from Steinberg.
Committed to the future through tradition.
The diverse changes in social, ecological, and societal fields, changing markets, and new technologies create daily challenges. To meet these challenges in harmony with the environment, employees, suppliers, and customers while balancing the present and the future, Lausitzer has committed itself to sustainable corporate guidelines.
We are certified and work according to the Sedex and Smeta guidelines. Furthermore, we constantly work to improve our carbon footprint. To achieve this, we undergo annual audits and are members of the environmental management network Mari:e.
How it all began.
The "Bremer Dampffabrik für ätherische Öle und Essenzen" is founded in Bremen for the production of essences, flavors, and beverage bases for the entire beverage industry.
Hugo Paul founded the Lausitzer Konservenfabrik "Hugo Paul" in Sohland an der Spree. Over time, the range is expanded to include jams, candied citrus peel, marzipan, and fruit syrup.
The Lausitzer Konservenfabrik Hugo Paul is expropriated and transferred to the "public property" of the GDR. The VEB Kombinat Obst-und Gemüseverarbeitung Sohland produced well-known products such as the "Lausitzer Orangenperle" and the "Lausitzer Fipse" until 1990.
In Bremen, the portfolio is expanded to include fruit preparations for the dairy industry and ice cream, bakery and confectionery production, now under the name Sundi GmbH. In 1978, Werner Deharde takes over the company.
Werner Deharde takes over Lausitzer Fruchtsaft GmbH and Oberlausitzer Fruchthof (Ziko) from Treuhand. In 1999, the Dresden traditional brand "Lockwitzgrund" is added.
The division of essences and ingredients of Sundi GmbH in Bremen was sold to Universal Flavours (USA) in 1998, while the fruit preparations for the dairy, ice cream, and bakery industry were moved to Lausitzer Früchteverarbeitung in Sohland.
The Lausitzer Früchteverarbeitung becomes a true family business: Maximilian Deharde becomes a partner and joins the company, developing the innovative division "Lausitzer Food Solutions".
The Rostock jam manufactory "ROKOMA" is acquired, and from then on, jams are produced in Sohland under this name.
In 2016, the company Ackermann's Haus is acquired, known primarily for the baby food brand Kinella. Production is continued at the Ellefeld location in Vogtland.
In this year, Lausitzer Früchteverarbeitung was awarded the "Saxony Entrepreneur of the Year" award. This award recognizes many years of hard work - across generations.
With the acquisition of BWF Beeren-, Wild-, Feinfrucht GmbH in Steinberg, the range of products is expanded to include the brands Waldkauz-Pilze, Metzger Meyer-Eintöpfe and Naturwerk-Suppen, and production is continued at the site in the Ore Mountains.
The capacity of the Sohland location is expanded with a new steam boiler production line, making the location future-proof in terms of energy.
The Lausitzer Früchteverarbeitung GmbH is the largest fruit-processing company in Saxony and one of the leading companies in the field of food additives and consumer goods in the fruit segment.
